If I may ask.
What kind of boulder is this?
How did it get there?
And in case it has been moved there by humans; why?

No one put it here - it is about six feet in diameter, so pretty big to get down here on the beach. I assume, like all Tahoe boulders, it eroded slowly from inside the dirt and then rolled down here. It is made of granite - the mountains here are almost solid granite, so it can produce zillions of these boulders! :)

Interesting. Thank you for the info!
Massive granit, getting cut out of the mountains and then rolling down.
Lucky that this one didn't roll further and didn't immerse; waiting for you for a nice photo.
The significantly smaller stones in different colours compliment the big one well.
I consider this a more beautiful beach than the sand-only ones.

Edit: Now I typed so much I could have done a critique, welp.
